[QUOTE=maineman;2124506]Thanks for the logs.
Recommend that you change your blank media from CMC to either Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden. The entry “Not Applicable to this bus type” might be related to the media, but I think you have additional problems.
Your ODD has a SATA interface, but is configured as an IDE drive.
Is this drive connected directly to the motherboard?
I don’t see where your drive is in DMA mode and since it’s configured as an IDE drive, then the DMA/PIO modes apply, despite it being a SATA ODD.
The entry in device manager “[I]DMA if available[/I]” is not sufficient.
This is not the same as a DMA mode
Please look in your bios and make certain DMA is enabled for this drive.

No wonder you’re unhappy[/QUOTE]
Thanks Maineman, I tried what you suggest in the bios but unfortunately the only option was Off, On, RAID On. I scrolled through all of the other bios options SYSTEM, PROCESSOR, MEMORY, PCI, DATE/TIME, BOOT, ONBOARD DEVICES, LED CONTROL, PERFORMANCE, SECURITY, POWER MANGEMENT, MAINTENANCE, and POST BEHAVIOR, but none had any settings for DMA. I also loked in the Device Manager in the SCSI and RAid Controllers and for the that DVD drive it was set to let bios determine. The seletion box when let bios determine was unselected allowed two choices Serial ATA Generation 1 -1.5G or PIO Mode. I’m unsure what to check next.
